10 Reasons Norway is the Greatest Place on Earth

1. It’s One of the Happiest Places on Earth
Norway ranked second in a 2013 world happiness report conducted by the United Nations. They looked at various factors, like life expectancy, prosperity, health, and social support, all indicating that Norway is a great place to be. Residents have also been known to have high satisfaction with their standards of living and feel they can choose the direction of their lives. Clearly, Norwegians have got it good.

2. The Allemannstret Law
Norway employs the law of Allemannstret which, essentially, is the freedom to roam wherever one chooses. It’s a right of access law, which provides people with almost unlimited opportunities for using their outdoor surroundings. As long as the land is unfenced and far enough from a house, you can have a picnic, explore by foot or ski or anything else, sleep under the sky, have a campout, pick some flowers — really anything you want.

4. Trolltunga is the Perfect Photo Op
How would you like to step out onto this huge piece of rock? Trolltunga, translating to Troll’s Tongue in English, hangs out horizontally from the rock face at about 700 meters high. It’s pretty spectacular, but just remember to leave your fear of heights behind.

5. And so is Kjeragbolten
Kjeragbolten Boulder is yet another spectacular spot in Norway that you can easily visit. Located in the Kjerag Mountains in Rogaland, a large glacial deposit is wedged between a mountain crevice over an abyss that’s 984 meters deep. While stunning from afar, how would you like to stand atop it and gaze down at the drop below? Yikes! If you’re gutsy enough you can (Allemannstret, remember?), just be sure not to slip…

6. Its Breathtaking Fjords
Norway is famous for its beautiful fjords. These deep sea inlets are easily accessible and just waiting to be explored, surrounded by stunning views and other natural wonders.

7. The Midnight Sun
For anyone who’s ever resented twilight’s darkness for putting a crimp on their fun day plans, you’ll love Norway’s midnight sun. Because Norway is situated above the Arctic Circle, during the summer, the country has 24-hours of daylight. Yep, the sun is out all day (and night) long. This leaves plenty of time for fun things to do, and you’ll never have to worry about the night preventing you from participating in any great activities. Well, at least until winter rolls around that is.

8. It Has More Lakes than You Think
Sure, Finland may be the country known for its many lakes, giving that it’s nicknamed the land of 1000 lakes and all. However, with about half a million lakes within its borders, Norway beats out Finland for total number of these bodies of water (the latter of which has about 188000). Norway also has some of the deepest lakes in Europe. So, sorry Finland, but, when it comes to lakes, Norways got you beat.

9. You can see the northern lights
Norway is home to the spectacular northern lights or aurora borealis. You can see the fantastic natural lightshow at certain times during the year, and gazing up above as the vibrant colors light up the surrounding skies is one of a kind. It’s particularly great to view them from Lofoten islands.

10. Ferrying through Geirangerfjord
When in Norway, you can take a fantastic ferry ride through Geirangerfjord, a UNESCO world heritage site. There’s some beautiful scenery and dramatic views, all of which you can enjoy while relaxing on deck.

11.Its Explorable Geography
Norway’s geography includes 240000 islands and a coastline that stretches out for over 64000 miles. There’s so much to explore you’ll never get bored. So, what are you waiting for?

  7. I'm from The Netherlands, and looking at the facts, I guess Norway is indeed the best country to be.
    Support from The Netherlands.

  8. #7. It has more lakes than Finland. really? As a matter of fact, Finland has 187 888 lakes, and that is a few more than in Norway! The title of this video should have been: "10 reasons why norway is the most psychopathic place on earth, having the pride of an idiot."

  9. Norway's cities and small towns are beautify, but the cities are a different story. Oslo is full of rapist and immigrants from far outside Europe. Scandinavia opened it's doors to the third world, unfortunately, now it pays the price.

  10. I read some of the comments, and what I saw was people writing about a country they have never been or lived in. I live in norway, and to all that think we freeze to death. We do not freeze that much, we warm up out houses, drink a hot cup of chocolate and dress up with more clothes when we go outside. And it is quite beautiful here in norway. If you go to Oslo (capital of norway) you can sure find lots of funny things to do. Well thats waht i wanted to say :3
